The USS New York, is less than a day away from it's new home, the Mayport Naval Base.

Hundreds of sailors aboard say they're humbled to be there.

The artifacts from both New York and the September 11th attacks make this ship one of the best in fleet.

Fire Department of New York and New York Police Department donated many of the artifacts and memorabilia to the USS New York when the ship was built several years later.

The sailors say it's a good reminder as to why they serve.
